Tomorrow (Saturday) is 24 hour comic day where cartoonists all over the world bust their butts to try to draw 24 pages of comics in 24 hours. That’s an incredible effort. I’ve done it a coupletimesbefore. It’s exhausting, but I love it.
I’m going to try something a little different this year. I’m going to draw backup stories for Incredible Doom, little glimpses into the world of the comic that we didn’t get to see in the regular series.
What did Sam’s dad and Allisons dad say to each other the moment after their kids drove away together in the station wagon?
Who was the first girl that Tina had a crush on and what was that like?
There was a hint that that there might be more to Ryan, the jerk from issue two who was torturing Richard but we different never really found out what. Is there more to be told there? I don’t know!
I’m going try to find out, by writing and drawing like crazy this weekend. These comics are going to be pretty rough, as is tradition for 24 hour comic day, but I think they should also be pretty cool.
So keep an eye on Patreon Lens or Instagram (where I may even try live-streaming) for updates.
I’ll post at least one comic for all patrons to read, and the rest of whatever I get done will go to the patrons at the $10 “Backup Story” level.
I’m excited. This should be fun!
By the way, Issue 5 should be hitting the mail for patrons next weekend. So if you want one become a member soon.
I’d been so busy cranking out new Incredible Doom, my comic series about 90s teens making life-threatening decisions over the early internet, that I’ve been forgetting to post about them here. So you may not know that there are FOUR whole issues that are free to read at incredibledoom.com, with a 5th issue half completed which Patreon members can read.
It’s been a blast drawing these comics. They are some of my favorite stories I’ve ever done, and the best part is you can get beautiful print editions of them sent to your house, just by becoming a member for $4 a month. (you can also buy back issues here to complete your set)
If you’d like to catch up, just click on the covers above to jump right to that issue. You can also be notified by email whenever there are new issues posted.
I am incredibly proud to announce the launch of my next major comic project.
Incredible Doom is an ongoing print and web comic series about 90s teens making life threatening decisions over the early internet. It’s full of computers, dangerous stage magicians, young love, astronauts, and a desperate teenage need to connect with each other.
All of issue one is available to read online now on incredibledoom.com. It tells the story of Allison, her oppressive father, and the first computer she ever owned. Pages of subsequent issues featuring other characters will post every two weeks, culminating in a new issue being printed every two months.
The printed issues are something to see. With offset press covers and rounded corners, they are designed to look great lined up on your shelf to be enjoyed over and over again. You can buy issues individually or get them mailed to their door automatically if you are a member on Patreon. Members also get to read a full two months ahead of what’s posted publicly. Which means members can read all of Issue 2 right now.
I’m so excited for the future of this. My collaborator Jesse Holden and I have lots of great plans. I hope you’ll follow the stories as they progress and perhaps even support if possible.
If now isn’t the time to become a member I understand. Make sure to subscribe to the mailing list I’ll let you know the moment a new issue is available for everyone to read.
I haven’t talked about Patreon Milestone Goals in a while. When we reached the last one I celebrated by posting a PDF of the first comic I ever published as a teenager back in the 90s. I’ve got a new one which, I hope, is even more exciting.
If we reach $100 per paid post, every patron backing over $1 gets an original sketch.
Regardless if you’re backing at a $1 or $100, if you’re over a dollar, you get a post card with an original drawing by me on it. It might be Mary or Nel from The Chairs’ Hiatus, or a dog I see in a coffee shop, someone riding the bus with me, or Fugitoid. Everybody backing at the end of the month in which this goal is reached gets one in the mail, just to say thank you, so much, for helping me stay afloat while I make these comics.
We’re only $13 dollars away.
If you’d like one and decide to help support me you’ll also get to read the all the pages of my next comic Scissors, OH that I’ve been posting over the last few months. It’s the only place those pages exist right now.
